Oracle install on VM


First I will introduce myself. I am an ex-VMS systems programmer/DBA. I have been given the task of installing Oracle 11gR2 on Linux VMware. I have opened a ticket with Oracle on this, but thought I would see if anyone here has already done this.

Welcome to LQ!

I might be missing something, but installing Oracle in a VM would be the same as installing it on any other machine. If you've got an OS running as a guest, just follow the normal Oracle install and configure instructions for that OS. Personally, I've done this with 10g on a CentOS 5 VM, and it wasn't any different than installing Oracle on a real machine.

Go to Oracle and get the premade VM. http://www.oracle.com/technetwork/co...-vm/index.html

Oracle install on VM

I had posted the question on Metalink and was told that while it was possible, only their Oracle VM was supported. But they would help me.
Thanks for the link to the premade VM. While I don't see anything that applies to this current problem, I'm very happy to find the PHP Zend link.

Can I ask if you could do a touch more explaining on what the problem is then? Or is it the fact that the Oracle VMs are meant for VirtualBox and you need VMWare? If that is the case, you might look into VMware converter.

Does this mean you need official Oracle support?

A VM is a VM. dunno what they are saying but any OS and application ought to run on any common VM.

Did you see this?

"Database App Development

Includes:

* Oracle Linux 5
* Oracle Database 11g Release 2 Enterprise Edition"

Oracle 11g R2 has been installed and a database created. The only problem so far has been with SELinux running in "enforcing" mode. Coming from an OpenVMS background I have no idea what this means, but there is a workaround for it so I'm happy.
